San Rafael Swell Information

The San Rafael Swell was created by the same forces that created nearby Capitol Reef National Park and resulted in some similar geology. Exposed as a large, eroded wrinkle in the earth’s crust, it features dozens of miles of canyons ranging from small slot canyons to a much larger one known as the Little Grand Canyon. Though currently only managed under loose BLM regulations, many would argue that it deserves much more protection for future generations.
